HA! Dont know about a full wave, but 1/2 waves are def on the to-do list. Working with a friend in colorado for some 75/80m mobiles and base antennas. Trying to keep the mobile antennas under 10'. But the vertical base antenna gonna be about 67' tall. should be getting my new tig welder in a week or two.. things will be getting good around here!

Hey noise my pop was going to post up his viking 2 on here for sale It has ptt vfo-122 already if i
remember i recapped it It works good but no hifi mods yet mostly stock Only has the nickel core interstage transformer if i remembe And a few cap changes to pass more lows what i did in mine was bypass the
whole audio driver section and i drive my audio rack into an 8 ohm amp. Into an 8 ohm to 500 ohm
transformer then into a 500ohm to two grids broadcast transformer that feeds the 807's sounds real nice i removed a few caps i can go pretty much as wide as i want so i have to roll of the eq to narrow up my
signal theres a nice halicrafters receiver to going to go on here but its only general
Coverage not freeband so no cb just ham bands but nice sound
